AskBoA: Anyone interested in a game of cricket?

I’m what you would call an amateur of the highest order when it comes to cricket. I’d say I’m a late order batsman. About a number 9. I also can’t bowl all that well…

Having looked at the local teams and considered my options (i.e. none), I wondered if there was interest locally of organising a very friendly cricket game (ideally still competitive, but an emphasis on enjoying ourselves)?

Any age, gender, level of ability, etc. more than welcome.

I’ve not given it much more thought yet as I thought I’d wait to see what the interest was.

Thanks in advance

PS. should anyone locally already arrange such a thing then equally I would appreciate the details of how to be involved if I am welcome.


    • Hi – Are you aware of/considered the Canal Taverners Cricket Club. Genial bunch who play friendly but competitive cricket on the Victory field on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons against local teams. I know they’re short of players and anyone is welcome whatever standard. I’ve just retired – can’t bat, bowl or field anymore but bet I’ll still get phone calls on a Saturday asking me to play on Sunday. I’ve attached details of their website – or just say and I can give you contact details
